Year 2

Instruction writing


This week in English Miss Reynolds's English group have been looking at instructions.

To kick start our instruction writing we made we made some yummy Rice Krispie cakes.

After we made the Rice Krispie cakes,  we wrote about what we did in our English books - we made our instructions really clear and used adverbs, imperatives and time connectives to help us do that.



We then got the opportunity to research different types of instructions, using the iPads. How to make gummy bears was our favourite!

Super work :)

Hoghton Tower trip


We enjoyed a lovely day at Hoghton Tower. The children and teachers even dressed up as knights and ladies for the occasion! We looked at the room where King James I slept and found out that he rode around the house on a horse! We saw the ballroom where William Shakespeare may have taught and some children were fortunate enough to be knighted in The Great Hall. We met Jimmy in the dundgeons, although he looked a little skeletal.

All Year 2 children were very well behaved and asked some super questions.

Well done! 

Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to Year 2! The children have settled in and are working very hard.

Our topic this term is all about castles and we are looking forward to our trip to Hoghton Tower in October. 

In R.E. we are learning about the Bible and why it is a special book for Christians. We were lucky enough this week to have Rev. Pauline Nixon come in and speak to us about why the Bible is a special book. She brought in lots of different types for us to see.

Thank you for coming in! We took lots of photographs for you to see!
